What’s coming up:
Employment taxes update (spring)
This seminar will update you on all changes affecting employees and their employers for the coming tax year. It will draw on recent legislative change, together with proposals affecting the taxation of employment income, benefits and expenses.
7 Mar 2019 (pm) Kempton Park Racecourse
11 Mar 2019 (pm) Hendon RAF Museum
25 Mar 2019 (pm) 1 Wimpole Street, W1
Finance Act (spring)
This seminar will cover developments in the most recent Finance Act, focusing on those issues most important for the smaller practice and their clients. The impact of changes on previous advice, and any likely changes which might be necessary will be identified, and suitable solutions suggested for any practical issues that may arise from the legislative change.
Personal tax update
This seminar will cover changes in personal tax over the last 12 to 18 months covering the following tax areas: Personal income tax; Capital gains tax; Inheritance tax; Residence and domicile developments, offshore issues; The taxation of savings including pensions; Personal digital tax account developments; and, HMRC processes including simple assessment.
Tax update (spring and autumn)
This seminar, depending on the timing, will include an update on tax changes since the Spring Finance Act, and possibly any Budget content that has been announced. It will also examine some of the future proposals in tax, identifying situations where your advice to clients may have to change.
Accounting/financial reporting update (spring)
This seminar will cover changes made to FRS 102 and FRS 105 following the triennial review. Using examples and case studies, this seminar will take a practical look at the opportunities and pitfalls of transition for entities small, medium or large, and even micro companies.
Audit assurance update (spring)
This seminar will take a fresh look at scepticism, independence and audit evidence using ICAEW’s new film, Without Question. When the faculty used the previous film, False Assurance, on its roadshow it received excellent feedback from delegates, some saying that it was the most useful audit course they had ever been on. So far the consensus is that Without Question is even better!
Change management for finance
Organisational and information strategies are rarely successfully implemented. Implementation requires the integration of strategy, processes and people – yet linkages between organisational change and strategy are at best unclear and at worst non–existent. This seminar provides a structured series of techniques to ensure key stakeholders understand why the change is happening, accept the new reality and commit to the ‘call for action’.
Do more in a day than you do in a week
Being effective is a crucial aspect of our wellbeing. It gives us a sense of achievement, autonomy, certainty, purpose and control, and this, in turn, leaves us more fulfilled and motivated to do more. This workshop, run by CABA, is a chance for you to step back and review what you do (goals and priorities), how you do them (strategies), and your relationship to them.
